How can I use two parameters for a URL?

Just having a play and came up with this recordset but it's still not working, however the page is not just erroring now. no record is being printed, but it is showing the page template now. Before I was just getting Query was empty. Here's my RS code:

$colname_rs_blog = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['id'])) {
$colname_rs_blog = $_GET['id'];
$urlTitle_rs_blog = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['title'])) {
$urlTitle_rs_blog = $_GET['title'];
mysql_select_db($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection);
$query_rs_blog = sprintf("SELECT * FROM tbl_blog WHERE blog_id = '".$colname_rs_blog."' AND blog_url = '".$urlTitle_rs_blog."'", GetSQLValueString($colname_rs_blog, "text"),GetSQLValueString($urlTitle_rs_blog, "text"));
$rs_blog = mysql_query($query_rs_blog, $PowerCMSConnection) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rs_blog = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_blog);
$totalRows_rs_blog = mysql_num_rows($rs_blog);

And tried this as a URL:
<a href="blog.php?id=<?php echo $row_rs_blog['blog_id']; ?>-?title=<?php echo $row_rs_blog['blog_url']; ?>">

This is the result in the address bar:

But, when I echo both $colname_rs_blog and $urlTitle_rs_blog to see what values are populating the variables, I am getting this:
-12-?title=cycling-tour-lejog-real-life-training. For some reason it has -1 in front of the id.

I actually think colname_rs_blog is defaulting to -1 and the record id is somehow tagging on to urlTitle_rs_blog when I echo the params, but why I don't know!

Any thoughts?
